Brewed by Ringnes, who took over and closed traditional Oslo rivals Frydenlund many years ago. Frydenlund's yeast was allegedly preserved, and revived in this pilsener with its "characteristic rich and rounded flavour".

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 9, 2007
On tap @ Justisen, Oslo. The bottle version has been available for 149 years so far. Now sadly retired. The owners (Carlsberg) have replaced Frydenlund Pilsener in the stores with their poor canned Norwegian version of Grøn Tuborg. Shame on them! Frydenlund Pilsener is fortunatly still available (for a while) on tap in some Oslo pubs. Pours clear pale golden. Dense, mostly lasting white head. Nice lacing. Slight hoppy aroma, also sweetish grain and yeast. Weak, but well rounded malt flavors. Medium body. Short bitter/sweet finish.

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - MAY 15, 2006
33 cl bottle. Golden clear colour with a nice white head. Light aroma of sweetness from the malt. Sweet flavour of a touch of hops and caramel, someway dull and uninteresting.

Gr0ve (2177) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 9, 2006
330 ml bottle. Average white head which subsides quickly leaving the beer transparent. Medium carbonation level. Fruity aroma, which I believe is from their proprietary yeast. Noble hop aroma. Gentle hop bitterness and smooth malt perception. Well balanced.

larsga (6765) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 7, 2006
Coarse lace above somewhat creamy, white, medium-sized head. Clear copper body. Aroma is standard Ringnes caramel malts with some butter. Taste is buttery caramel with skunked hops (from a can!). Some bitterness, but no proper aftertaste. This is very, very poor. Has to be one of the worst pilseners I’ve had. Ringnes must really hate the memory of Frydenlund.
